How and Why We Choose Our Products
Livingreen’s trademarked green-product-evaluation program, SHADES OF GREEN, helps staff and customers alike understand how and why we choose our products:
The matrix of questions and categories rate the products for how ‘green’ they actually are —from Budding Green to Deep Forest—grading them against other products in their category as well as other products in our stores. SHADES OF GREEN considers all the steps involved in getting products to the customer – from manufacture and transportation through disposal and reuse…the entire product life-cycle. We continually update our product mix and information to bring our customers the very best green choices available.
